It is important for your potential roommate to submit an application and be approved by management before they move into your home. Occupancy of the premises by an unauthorized occupant prior to the written consent and approval of owner will be considered a material breach of the Agreement and may subject all residents to immediate termination of tenancy.
ADDITION OF A NEW ROOMMATE:
The new roommate must submit to the standard screening procedure required of all new residents. After your new roommate is approved management, all residents must sign the roommate addendums to the lease prior to them moving into the residence. Also prior to moving in, (if applicable) your cosigner(s) must sign a new guarantee of payment that includes the new roommate’s name, and any additional deposit must be paid in full.
REMOVAL OF A ROOMMATE FROM THE RENTAL AGREEMENT:
Each roommate acknowledges that he/she is jointly and severely responsible for the performance of this entire agreement whether he/she continues to physically occupy the Premises or not unless he/she gives a proper notice.
- In a month-to-month tenancy, 30-days written notice is required.
- In a lease, each roommate is bound for the term of the lease unless released therefrom by all parties concerned which include the landlord as well as the remaining residents on the lease. Therefore, in the event that one roommate leaves and is replaced by another, the new roommate must fill out the Rental Application and sign the lease in order to release the departing roommate from any further obligation on the contract.
SECURITY DEPOSIT REFUNDS IN ROOMMATE SITUATIONS:
No Security Deposit refunds are made by owner until the entire premises are completely vacated and then only to the last remaining co-resident(s). Therefore, no refund or rent proration will be made to the departing roommate in the interim. Any deposit returned will be made payable to all remaining roommates. All other roommates must provide a written authorization if any roommate requests that a check be made payable to only one roommate.
